Eye Excercises

The eye exercises affect different areas of the brain. They are suggested in order to cement the results provided by the postural reprogrammation. The exercises should be performed 1-3 times a day for optimal results

Binocular version

  1. Sit comfortably on a chair with back support. Both feet are on the ground.
  2. Draw a vertical line on the index finger of your dominant hand (colors: blue or green).
  3. Bring the target (vertical line) in your field of vision, as if you are looking straight ahead.
  4. Bring the target towards you, in line with your eyes. At the point where the line becomes double, back up just enough to make it one.
  5. At that point, create a clock wise circle where the dimensions are as follows:
  6. No wider than the sides of the face, no higher than mid forehead, no lower than the level of the eyes.
  7. Perform for 1 minute as you try to get the target closer to the root of your nose.

 

Monocular version

  1. Sit comfortably on a chair with a back support. Both feet are on the ground.
  2. Draw a vertical line on the index finger of both of your hands (colors: blue or green).
  3. If working on the right eye, use the left hand to cover the eye.
  4. Bring the target (vertical line) on your right hand in your field of vision, as if you are looking straight ahead. Only the right eye is looking at the target.
  5. Bring the target towards you, in line with your right eye. As you get closer, create a clock wise circle where the dimensions are as follows:
  6. No wider than the sides of the face, no higher than mid forehead, no lower than the level of the eyes.
  7. Perform for 30 seconds as you try to get the target closer to the root of your nose.
  8. Perform the exercise for the left eye by using the left hand to do the circles.

At the end of either version, look out a window, far in the distance, for 10-15 seconds in order to avoid tension in the eye musculature.
